Spoonbills are great birds and so much fun to watch how they sweep the water for food.

New to me bird. Interesting.

Hazel said...

I just realized that all this time I seem to have a single idea of what birds like these are called -just "waterfowl." Spoonbill is new to me. Thanks for the new bird vocabulary, and for hosting.

Happy Wednesday, Betty!

Here we have something in common, and it's probably not the only thing. The spoonbills also lives in Romania, in the Danube Delta. They are rare birds, protected by law.

Have a fine day, dear Betty!

Aren't they just marvellous? Spoonbills and sawfish, pelicans and puffins, swordfish and echidnas all have schnozzes fit for purpose! ;-)

What interesting birds! I've never seen before, although the species is also found here, in the south-east! (I found out today from Zina) 😊
Have a wonderful day!

Love spoonbills! The variety here has bright pink feathers. I've seen them in certain places in Florida, but they're hard to find.
Have a great week!

I absolutely love water fowl. Lovely photo. We have an area where I live where tundra swans migrate through every fall. We just saw some last weekend and are going back this weekend with binoculars. thanks for the party.
